Little, Brown has revealed Seth’s cover for Who Can That Be at This Hour?, the eagerly awaited first book in a new series by Lemony Snicket (the pen name of Daniel Handler), whose 13-volume A Series of Unfortunate Events sold more than 60 million copies worldwide.
Seth is also providing the spot illustrations for the four-volume new series All the Wrong Questions, an autobiography of sorts that goes back to Snicket’s childhood in a “fading town, far from anyone he knew or trusted.”
As is customary for Lemony Snicket books, the cover unveiling comes with a warning: “I suggest extreme caution … The distribution of this cover image should be on a need-to-know basis, limited to librarians, booksellers, readers, e-readers, educators, journalists, muck-rakers, bloggers, tweeters, men, women, and children.”
Who Can That Be at This Hour? arrives Oct. 21.
